    Thanks to my website I have just picked up my biggest commercial job. I was asked to quote it up 2 weeks ago, it's a large library, 20 small windows, 13 big big windows.. So as I was emailing the quote I had £60 then backspaces that out and changed it to £80!

    Got a call yesterday asking if I could email my insurance details, which the requirement was £5mill and I only had 2mill.. So had to go and increase to the £5mill and once they receive this today I have got the go ahead to start whenever.

    Now before I have only cleaned chippys takeaways dentist hairdressers all ground level etc etc, nothing this big! So I want to be able to give them risk assessment and method statements which is baffling me to be honest.

    So it has me thinking if I got accepted at £80, what did others quote!!

    I also got an email asking how much for the insides.. ( this is going to be an absolute nightmare to do interior windows! ) so I'm going to say at least £120..

    Im also hoping this will introduce me to more libraries or schools.. How would I ask about more work?? - anywhere else got dirty windows? Lol.. As my lads school is stinking, and these are the people who would deal with it all

    It does take a bit of time for the search engines to start picking up the website properly but once they do you'll see the benefits!

    Over time you site will rank higher. Well in google ive noticed this is the case (i think). Im guessing age is a factor in site ranking?
